Default Re: Final AP poll puts us at No. 4...wow.

And this is what makes the BCS bowl system a joke....especially the BCS Bowl that "the first team from SC to win a BCS Bowl" played in:

USC beat 5 teams that finished in the top 25 rankings. 3 of them in the top 10. Clemson only beat 1 single solitary top-25 ranked opponent, all year. And it was 12th-ranked Ohio State. Beat ZERO teams that finished in the top 10.

And Ohio State only beat 1 single solitary top-25 ranked opponent, all year (Wisconsin). Beat ZERO teams that finished in the top 10. And they both were BCS bowl-caliber teams? A joke....

Great point about Clem&Son! They were like Ohio State, both highly over-rated programs that have head coaches that write checks with their mouth that their butts can't cash!

This Ladies & Gentlemen, with the youngest team in the country and after losing
to an unranked team and basically a week away from dropping outside
the Top 25 for the first time in two years at one point in the season.

Say whatever you want to, but this was Coach Steve Spurrier's BEST
SINGLE SEASON COACHING JOB OF HIS CAREER ! How in the hell he held
this team together before mid season with a defense of about 60%
Freshmen or first time starters, and a defense that was lacking the
basics of assignments and fundamental tackling skills was beyond
Amazing, and yet we ended up the fourth best team in the nation when
the smoke cleared and the final seconds ticked off the clock to end the season. ..... WOW !!!

What a great job by Coach Adams, Coach Botkin, and coach Brown to
bring that group together, and hats off to Coach Spurrier for holding the
season together when a lot of fans were jumping ship after the UT loss.

BEST SINGLE SEASON COACHING JOB OF HIS CAREER, Best single season
for the Gamecocks to date, with even better yet to come.



What A Great Day On A Frosty Morning To Wake Up In Dixie And See This - South Carolina #4 In The Nation!!!

You have stated everything here that all of us Gamecock Fans wanted to say! Coach Spurrier, what an awesome job he has done this year and what a great coach we have here at USC. Sometimes, I think we take for granted just how lucky we are to have this man as the Head Ball Coach. Granted, he has a very good staff behind him and they do work their butts off to make this team what it is today, but Coach Spurrier is THE MAN WHO PUTS IT ALL TOGETHER AND DEALS WITH THE MEDIA AND TAKES ALL THE BLAME FOR WHATEVER GOES WRONG. Coach Spurrier has also taken Pickens County Tech and did to them what he did to Jawja when he was at Florida, HE OWNS THEM!!!! Dabo and company at Moo U will huddle together all winter trying to figure out how in the world he will ever beat Coach Spurrier and USC and most likely will get stomach ulcers if he does not already have them! Go Cocks!

Default Re: Final AP poll puts us at No. 4...wow.

My search engine skills suck, apparently, because I have been trying to find out how the voters' ballots looked, both the AP and Coaches, but I haven't found either. Will someone please post a link to that information?

What most excites me is that our players will workout and each lay their heads on their pillows every night between now and August 28 (when Texas A&M comes to town), knowing that last year they were the 4th best team in the nation. All their hard work last year was returned in kind. A wee bit harder and who knows! Well done Cocks!

Great validation for Connor Shaw to go out 4th in the land. That pass to Bruce at Mizzou was the biggest moment in USC football history IMO.



Gonna be a different team without Connor. Maybe he'll pop out of the Cocky costume next year at the opener to motivate our guys.

Completely stoked about this.

3 straight 11-2 seasons. Missing the SEC championship game by 1 game 3 straight years in a row and making it in 2010.

And yet. We still get no respect from other fan-base's, even inside our own conference.

I hope we come out and crush people next year. Especially Auburn.

With all the guys we have I think we have another solid year next year. The first few will be a lot of adjustment but I can see another successful year.
